Created in collaboration with the Lady Johnson Wildflower Center, this vertical living wall is installed at The School of Architecture at the University of Texas in Austin. Situated on the north side of the campus, the living wall consists of a honeycomb-inspired design that ensures all plants are able to flourish within their own spaces.

Aside from housing plants, the living wall also acts as an artificial habitat for local wildlife including Anole lizards, butterflies and birds. Although strikingly beautiful to admire, the vertical living wall also acts as a great addition to the building's design. It helps to reduce noise and even helps to keep the interior of the building cool during the hot summer months.
